I have a question about laser decal paper. Can you use laser decal paper in a color copier at Kinkos?

I don't see why not, so long as the copier uses toner versus ink. But you would need to feed the sheets manually.

I made the N9 from an Eflite Jenny. I just got my hands on an extra Eflite wing so I am going to add extra bays just like they did to make a Jenny into an N9.

Here is the decal installed thanks to CarToon.

I found the decal/design I want to use and I was wondering how do you make them water proof or moisture proof. I want to use them on a float plane. Thanks all.

No problem, that's why we're all here to help each other out!!

I've used the printable vinyl decal paper (not this waterproof one) with no issues but I'm sure this will not be any different

Somebody 4 or 5 pages back was asking about USMC markings. I'm starting a build on a USMC Curtis F6C-3 and I've come across these markings. They aren't decals as such ... but maybe somebody can clean them up and use them.

The wolfs head and black shield is from The USN VF 5 Red Rippers and was used on the same a/c.

I made some large decals a wood plank design for a float plane I'm working on. They turned out pretty good. i used krylon clear apray paint. It turned the paper kinda vinyl like. Iused spray adhesive to mount it to the plane. Worked out great. I'll take a pic of it and post it tomorrow.

Tom
I got the captions wrong on the pics but you get the idea.

Decal wet or vinyl stickers


HI ALL

I'm sorry to ask, or better jes decal "wet"? Are vinyl stickers, which are thicker? Of course, you do not have vinyl stickers protect against fuel

I am finishing a scale CL model of a P-51 and would like to finish it as "Marie" - same as Banana Hobby's foam model. Does anyone have the proper decals for this beautiful P-51?
Thanks
